Beauty 411: Beauty Box Five

I've been waffling for quite some time over beauty subscriptions. I really want one BAD but I felt guilty treating myself. We have school obligations, birthday gifts, holidays and quite frankly, the girls are growing like weeds as in, they need new threads. BUT, I love the idea. I think it's brilliant and such a wonderful gift for any working woman, mom, sister, friend. It's truly the gift that keeps on giving. So! When Beauty Box Five gifted me with a sample box...needless to say, I was thrilled.


The box contained such high quality products that quite honestly, I was familiar with but hadn't ever splurged on. It was such a fun experience!
I've been seeing Nubar on the scene for quite some time. What I love about this product is that it took my 5-day manicure to an 8-day manicure. My once visible chips were completely disguised by the glitter lacquer and what's more, it was on trend. Win-win.

I am a lipstick aficionado, as you know.  As I get older, red lipsticks tend to bleed into my lovely fine lines. Getting old is fun! Perpetually on the search for a great liner, lo and behold Model Co.'s nude liner. My red lipstick never moved off my lips.

No shocker here...sometimes I forget to wash my face at night. Guilty. No longer the case. I keep these fresh smelling cleansing wipes in my nightstand so there is no excuse to be lazy and wake up with raccoon eyes. They are completely gentle on my skin and smell divine.

This was a bonus. I actually buy this moisturizer on a regular basis. Now I have a travel size for quickie business trips or long weekends. Truth be told, you need to buy some. It's non-greasy and many claim the same but this is the first to actually live up to its promise.

Truth: I am a total wreck at painting my nails. Probably because I can't stand still. These glittery beauties have made such a difference. No longer do I have smudges and swipes. It's as close as I will get to the real deal. And really, who doesn't need more glitter in their life?

I am totally impressed with Beauty Box Five. I love that my products are perfect from a travel size standpoint and cover all different price points. So yes, I am sold on beauty subscriptions. Thank you Beauty Box Five.
